0 Reviews
This volume develops the positive philosophy of woman which Thomas held. This philosophy which is seen as a specification of integral humanism, is termed integral feminism. The workdispells many misconceptions about Aquinas' view of woman. These errors include the idea that woman: is a masoccasionatus, has no equality with man, is a slave, and is not by nature an imago Dei. This work is divided into five parts.
